Guys,
Do you think removing the oil pump, tank and injection will free any power?
If so, what ratio oil would be safe?

I don't think you'll add any power, just drop some weight. And eliminate the possibility of your oil pump failing. I've been thinking about doing it on my race bike. Keep in mind that if you use premix you'll want to change your jetting too. Adding oil to the gas will change the viscosity, so I imagine you'd need to install larger jets.

As far as the mix ratio...I think somewhere in the 30:1 range. Maybe 35:1? That seems to be the range most people recommend.

I think I'm going to go that route myself.
Since the bike is apart anyway...:rolleyes:

'Planing on one size up on main....35:1 mix to start...or, er...as Frank said :happy:
